Juan Soto rejects biggest contract in MLB history and officially enters trade block
However, Washington offered Soto $440 million over 15 years which is huge from Mike Trout’s 12-year, $426.5 million only.
The Athletic reports that Soto would have made an average salary of $29.33 million
Soto is arguably the most decorated young slugger of his generation. He is known for his all-time great batting eye and impressive raw power.
Soto is represented by Scott Boras, who will likely seek the first-ever $500 million contract for his client.
A Soto trade is not imminent, according to The Athletic.
If he’s traded at the deadline this year, he would be controlled by his new club for the next three playoff races.
